THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -
A woman who sped away from a traffic stop early Saturday morning, with a child in the vehicle, was followed by officers who kept the SUV in view.
A Thomas County Sheriff's Office deputy stopped a Jeep Cherokee traveling on U.S. 319 North near Hill Road about 1:00 a.m. Saturday. The officer asked the driver, Lajuli Smith, for a driver's license and proof of liability insurance.
Smith said she did not have her driver's license with her but did have an insurance card. The deputy detected she also possibly had been drinking.
Dispatch informed the deputy a driver's license could not be found in the name provided by Smith, and she then sped off.
Another deputy arrived, and the officers followed Smith, who traveled onto Dillon Road, north to Lawhorn and onto Centennial Road. Knowing a small child was in the vehicle, officers backed off, keeping the Jeep in sight.
When Smith was stopped, officers released the child to an aunt.
Smith is charged with speeding, failure to stop at railroad crossing, fleeing or attempting to elude, reckless driving, endangering the life of a child while driving under the influence and driving while license suspended/revoked.
